Atitlán Beach Bag by Corazón Del Lago Atitlán 


Inspired by Lake Atitlán in Guatemala, this oversized tote is the boho beach bag of your dreams. The fabric has been created by using the labor intensive processes of backstrap loom weaving and ikat thread dyeing, resulting in a beautifully rich, awe-worthy fabric. Topped with a multitude of rope straps and two thread wrapped handles, you are sure to swoon at first glance. 


About Corazón Del Lago Atitlán 

San Juan La Laguna, Guatemala
In 2007 Maria Francisca Hernandez Vasquez opened her own business to put her traditional weaving skills to use. It was a very little store in which the women of San Juan La Laguna would come to offer their handmade products. Soon, Francisca could no longer afford to buy the textiles by herself and decided to start a cooperative. A year later, 16 women formed the cooperative Corazon Del Lago. 

Maria says, "Today we are a women’s cooperative made up of 33 women that use traditional Mayan techniques to hand make our products. Using plants to dye the cotton fabric, our items are 100% natural and environment friendly. 
We empower our women by providing them a job to feed their families and support their children in school while also giving them a platform to express themselves. Our values include community empowerment, self-accomplishment, and environmental sustainability. Each item embodies our culture, passion, and values."

May this shop grow strong, and provide for many women.

STORY

TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD

I recently discovered this amazing website and ordered necklaces for my daughters. I received them in 2 days! Not only did they arrive quickly, they were carefully packed and beautifully wrapped. I wanted to peek so bad but resisted because I wouldn’t be able to duplicate the wrapping. This website empowers, features and recognizes women artists and honors their work.
They cared so much they asked for feedback and responded when I provided it. This will definitely be one of my go to sites for gift giving.

We all need that special thing for our ourselves/lover/sister/friend.

The sweet thing is that the research is done on where to intentionally drop our cash! I simply love the products, stories behind who creates the products and the fact that I can depend on the best curated collections.

This all makes Pennylark Finery my go-to place - and why I’m getting ready to put order number four out the door. Thank you, PennyLark Finery!
